Stress management: Dopamine is deficient in the brains of people suffering from Parkinson’s. This is a problem because it produces adrenaline, which is used to cope with stress. So, whether it’s meditation, massage, or relaxation techniques, it’s really important to try and relax.

Plan ahead. When possible, plan ahead knowing that you can’t do as much in a day as you once did.

Distract yourself: focus on doing the things that make you happy, and socialize with your family and friends.

Organize. Being organized both decreases stress and saves time.

Pace yourself. Try to do your most ambitious tasks at the time of day when you feel most energetic.
